Watch the On Demand Webinar “Five Keys To A Successful Hybrid Cloud Storage Strategy”
IT professionals are looking for a way to use cloud storage for more than just a backup repository. They want these resources to fully participate in the entire storage infrastructure. The goal of a hybrid cloud storage strategy is to store the most active data on-premise, within the organization’s data center, while migrating the least active data sets to the cloud storage service provider.
If this goal can be achieved, it would free valuable storage space for data centers of all sizes (especially enterprises) from having to work through the issues concerning capacity growth. It would also allow data centers to focus storage assets and personnel on data that generates revenue.
The problem is that no matter how fast the speed of the connection, there is an obvious latency gap between the cloud storage provider and the storage on premise at the data center. Bridging this gap is critical to a successful implementation of a hybrid cloud storage infrastructure.
Watch the webinar where hybrid cloud storage experts George Crump, Founder of Storage Switzerland and Ron Bianchini, CEO of Avere Systems, discuss the five keys to a successful hybrid cloud storage strategy:
- High Speed On-Premise Storage
- Inexpensive, Reliable, Long-Term Storage
- Intelligent Movement Between On-premises and Cloud Storage
- Granular Control Over Specific Data Sets
- Cloud NAS Instead of a Gateway
It is important that the hybrid connection be more than just a gateway. A Cloud NAS is designed to deliver hybrid storage to the enterprise class data center. A Cloud NAS has to have the ability to provide high availability, consistent performance, scalability, a global namespace that integrates into the cloud, and lastly, the ability to instantly migrate data.
All viewers of the webinar will receive an exclusive copy of Storage Switzerland’s white paper, “Hybrid Cloud Now – Integrating Primary Storage with Cloud Storage“. In addition, all registrants will be able to access Storage Switzerland’s extensive library of on-demand webinars, many with exclusive white papers, without having to re-register.
